A bearded man with a ponytail spooked a woman when she spotted him standing by a door as she walked to a parking lot. She reportedly told the Kalispell Police Department the man immediately texted someone and a white van with out-of-state license plates pulled up next to her vehicle and a passenger “stared intently” at her. She left unscathed.

A man allegedly drove up in a black Chevy with a gun in his hand and accused another man of “doing stuff” with his wife, pointing the firearm at him. He was also reportedly wearing brass knuckles and had been harassing the other man for weeks. 

A man reportedly dropped drug paraphernalia, spoons and a bicycle frame as he wandered around a business’s parking lot screaming profanities.

People were allegedly sleeping under a railroad car and one individual had a knife. Officers passed on information about the camp set up to Kalispell Parks and Recreation.

A man reportedly grabbed a woman who slapped him. The pair told police nothing physical happened.

Someone was concerned a 76-year-old trying to purchase a firearm was having a dementia episode when he allegedly couldn’t answer questions and wandered toward the back of the store. An ambulance was called for an evaluation and the man was transported to the hospital.

Someone was suspicious of a man wearing a black jacket and ball cap who parked a jacked-up white truck in a cul-de-sac park and thought drugs were involved. The man drove away.
